Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #6
Thirty years after losing a parent to a hit-and-run drunk driver, FBI agent Alex Troutt finally confronts the killer–the same man who just murdered the Boston police chief.
And what Alex pulls from him shatters her core.
Armed with little more than hope and a shred of decades-old evidence, Alex chases a memory from her past, hoping that she’ll find the mother she never really had. With her old buddy Archie on board –as much as ever can be — the hunt takes her deep into the foothills of West Virginia. A fanatical religious cult has created its own society. Desperate to right a thirty-year wrong, Alex must out-think and out-duel everyone in her path to right a thirty-year wrong.
Will Alex’s quest to find the truth destroy her life all over again?

About the Author
A veteran of the corporate wars, former journalist, and true studier of human and social behavior, best-selling author John W. Mefford has been writing novels since he first entered the work force twenty-five years ago, although he never put words on paper until late 2009.
John writes novels full of intrigue, suspense, and thrills, but they also evoke an emotional connection with the characters.
When he’s not writing, he chases three kids around, slaves away in the yard, reads, takes in as many sports as time allows, watches all sorts of movies, and continues to make mental notes of people and societies across the land.
John lives in Frisco, Texas with his beautiful wife, three opinionated kids, and a feisty fat cat who rules the world.
I have read all the Alex Troutt books and am truly enthralled with the character. I also love the city of Boston so enjoy that most of the novels have been set in Boston.
This particular novel starts off oddly as Alex is burying her father. She has had some recent issues with her father and his death is not a huge surprise but is almost a weight off her shoulders. Of course, work calls and she is on her way back to Boston. Lo and behold, the Boston case brings up Alex’s childhood and what she thought was the death of her mother. The story progresses from there and kept me on the edge of my seat.
You may think you need to read the first five books before picking up AT Last. Do not worry about that. Each of these could be read as a standalone book. Mefford puts just enough background information in the book for you to understand what has gone on previously. The characters are well developed and the setting is ideal.
Pick up a copy of AT Last.
I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
